The couple, from Westhoughton, should be the world's biggest rivals during England and Denmark's crunch-match on Saturday.

But they have vowed not to let the game come between them whatever the result.

Teacher Nigel, who shares the same surname as legendary England goalie Gordon Banks, said: "Tina's put some Danish flags in our front window and I've been teaching our three-year-old daughter Emmeline to cheer for England. There should be a lot of rivalry, but I'm sure we'll all still be friends after the match."

Language tutor Tina, who comes from Bolton defender Stig Tofting's home town of Aarhus, said: "Denmark came last in the Eurovision song contest a few weeks ago, but I'm sure Stig and the team will do better tomorrow.

"It should be a close match, but end of the day Nigel and I won't be falling out.
